Climate change and the coming climate transitions are radically reshaping global politics, with profound domestic and international implications. We aim to make Cornell’s Government Department a disciplinary leader in the integrated study of the complex political transformations that are already in process as a result of global warming as well as in developing the transformative politics needed to respond to global warming and its consequences. We are interested in scholarship that addresses topics such as the intersection of climate and environmental politics with racial and ethnic politics, indigenous politics, political economy, environmental justice, the (in)equitable distribution of the costs of climate change, the politics of sustainability, and the politics of climate related migration, among others.

As part of this initiative, the Department of Government invites applications from scholars of American politics for a tenure-track position at the rank of assistant professor to begin in the fall semester 2024. A PhD is required no later than July 1, 2024. Applicants should apply online at https://academicjobsonline.org/ <https://academicjobsonline.org/> . Interested candidates should submit a letter of application, curriculum vitae, two samples of written work, three letters of recommendation, and teaching evaluations. In addition, we ask applicants to share their experiences and/or approaches (past, current, or future) to fostering learning, research, service, and/or outreach in a diverse community; applicants may submit a stand-alone statement or embed the information in other parts of their application.

We will begin to review applications starting September 20, 2023, and will continue until the search is complete.
